Relief Skate Supply
For the past ten years, my hometown of Panama City, FL has only had one legit skate shop that everyone has shopped at, XB. When in town, I can expect to see someone wearing an XB shirt or a sticker on someones car almost any day of the week. The man behind it all is Daniel Johnston.
Recently leaving XB, Daniel started up his own shop called Relief. It’s located in downtown Panama City alongside many other local businesses. I grew up skateboarding downtown almost every weekend, so I was really excited when I heard that’s where the shop is located. When I was back home, I visited Relief and was blown away with how great it looked. High ceilings, hardwood floors and two lofts at each end. Hats, shoes and clothes on one side and a wall of skate decks on the other. Can’t forget the large American flag by the register either. Very patriotic. Daniel always knew what he wanted in a shop and now he has done it. In addition to skate gear, Relief carries surf and skim gear as well.
Daniel has done a lot for the skateboard scene in Panama City when nobody else seemed to care and I don’t see him stopping anytime soon. Go check out the shop in person at
